Governor requests farmers’ help securing masks, other protective equipment
As we circle the wagons to battle COVID-19 here in Iowa, Governor Kim Reynolds’ office is asking farmers and all Iowans to donate personal protective equipment (PPE) to their local emergency management offices.
The priority for donations is N95 respirator masks or other similar masks. In addition, authorities would welcome donations of other PPE items, such as eye protection, latex-free gloves or gowns. Contact information for local emergency management offices in all Iowa counties can be found here: https://www.homelandsecurity.iowa.gov/documents/county/COORD_Public_List.pdf
Thank you for your generosity and determination as we navigate these difficult times. United, we are Farm Strong, and we will overcome this challenge together.
